Found this as an audiobook and listened to it on a car trip - Had no experience with the first and second books - just dove into this the third in the series. Wonderful audiobook! I actually enjoyed the "slow start" getting to know September and found the later parts of the book a bit difficult to follow sometimes - dashing about from one thing to another with nebulous goals. I loved the visual imagery and colorful language. I'm checking out the book version just to reread some of the more interesting bits - especially the part about the "shop of lies" at the beginning.

I loved this one. Waiting impatiently for the next one.

I felt like this book had the richest new characters and most original plot lines. However partly because of this,the book feels a bit like a rollercoaster ride with lots of stops and turns where the plot tumbles into randomness, slows down and then zooms ahead.There are lots of characters to keep track of but thankfully the author has provided a list at the front of the book. The ending caught me completely off guard and felt like it lacked connection to the rest of the plot. I would have liked to see further character development of the original characters but hopefully the author writes further books to address this!

I loved the first two books about September, but I didn't love this one. I'm still glad I read it and I hope there will be more. I can't put my finger on what was different.

I really liked this one, but then again, I didn't. And I have reasons for this, but they're not going to be your reasons, so you're probably going to love it. But personally, I had a bone to pick with this one.
